Week 14 Sleepers NFL Fantasy Football

Week 14 Sleepers NFL Fantasy Football

Week 14 Sleepers 2015 by Utter-Fantasy Writer & Illustrator Doug Bowles

Fantasy football owners have no more bye weeks to contend with for the rest of the season, but unfortunately many of them have injuries to key players that hurt them in Week 13. Hopefully the Week 14 Sleepers NFL Fantasy Football options will help owners recover from roster hits if you had from players such as NO RB Mark Ingram, CHI TE Matellus Bennett or any of the Charger WRs to name a few. –  Good Luck this week

Quarterback Sleepers Week 14


KC Alex Smith ( vs SD )-

1st time he’s been here! The Chargers are playing terrible and barely have a team, after so many key injuries to their roster. Also, Smith won’t hurt you with INTs. He hasn’t thrown one since Week 3

DEN Brock Osweiler ( vs OAK )-

The Raiders are better defending the run than they are defending the pass. QB Osweiler is getting more comfortable with his receivers every week, especially Demaryius Thomas, who has 2 TD passes in the past 3 games

HOU Brian Hoyer (vs NE )–

It’s a pretty safe guess to assume that the Texans will be playing from behind in this one, so QB Hoyer could 43 pass attempts like he did in Week 13 vs a tough defense like Buffalo has. Hoyer has thrown for at least 2 TDs in all the games he’s played in except 2, and hasnt thrown more than 1 INT in any of them


Running Back Sleepers Week 14



SF Shaun Draughn (at CLEV)-

“Sleeper” Recommendation Week 13- LINK– and he satisfied more than a Snickers candy bar can, with 86 total yards and 1 TD. He faces the Browns who are 2nd worst in the NFL at defending the run

DET Ameer Abdullah (at STL )-

This one is a stretch I’ll grant you, but the Rams are downright awful of late, and maybe….just maybe…that DET head coach has figured out to give the ball to Abdullah more. RB Abdullah has had 41 carries over the past 3 weeks, by far most on the team

NO CJ Spiller ( at TB)-

It pains me some to put him here, because hes a talented back who has burned fantasy football owners plenty, but RB Mark Ingram’s season ending injury opens the door for Spiller to finally do what we know he can. It could be RB Tim Hightower who takes over, we don’t know yet, but it makes sense to me to think Spiller does, having already worked with QB Brees all season


Wide Receiver Sleepers Week 14


MIA DeVante Parker ( vs BALT)-

WR DeVante Parker was a “Sleeper” Recommendation Week 13- LINK– and it turned out to be a good call-63 yards and 1 TD and his TD reception in the 2nd qtr made highlight reels. Parker plays the NY Ginats at home Week 14, who are dead last vs the pass

CAR Devin Funchess (at N.O.)-

The Panthers announced that they are sitting anyone, despite having a 12-0 record. If they are true to their word, then what a great opportunity for QB Can newton to get the rookie more action and experience before the playoffs, against the worst pass defense in the NFL

PITT Markus Wheaton (vs CINN)–

QB Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers talked up WR Markus Wheaton in the preseason, then forget about him in the regular season. He has come on in the past 2 games, racking up 251 yards receiving and 2 TDs. The Steelers are facing the Bengals in Cincinnatii who are tough against the run, not so tough vs the pass



Tight End Sleepers Week 14


NE Scott Chandler (at HOU )-

If you read my “Sleepers” from Week 12-LINK–  ( and Week 13) TE S Chandler might already be on your roster. Chandler was a nice part of the offense Week 12 before Gronk’s injury. No one really knows how long Gronk will need to nurse his knee injury, but he has stated that he won’t return until he’s 100 percent healthy. Chandler will be a vital part of the NE offense for a few weeks

TB Austin Seferian-Jenkins ( vs N.O.)-

In his 1st game back from injury, TE Seferian-Jenkins immediately got 6 targets from QB J Winston, and that was from just playing 21-of-71 snaps Week 13. He will get even more Week 14

NYG Will Tye (at MIA)-

TE Larry Donnell (neck) hasn’t seen the field since Week 8, so TE Tye has filled in for him. If you saw the game Week 13, you saw that Tye has some pretty good hands, hauling in 3 receptions for 70 yards- He has 25 targets from QB Eli Manning in the past 4 games


Defense Sleeper Week 14


SF (at CLEV)–

The Browns are starting Manziel this week, and as usual, there are those who think this guy is already great, even though his on-field and off-field record has been anything but. The 49res defense is better than it gets credit for

GB (vs DAL)–

The Cowboys have no choice but to run out QB Matt Cassel, who hasn’t thrown for 300 yards in any game, and who has only thrown 1 TD pass since Week 9
